Salinas, California
Reviewed 17 February 2015

We found this on Groupon one year and continue to return. Sure it's older but my goodness it is so clean, its rooms are charming and comfortable. Breakfast is a nice spread and what's really cute is the wine and cheese in the afternoon. The large hot tub/pool is amazing after a day of sight seeing. Staff is so accommodating...

Although this hotel is old and somewhat dated, it was quite a charming little find. We purchased a Groupon and it was a good buy. The room was clean and quiet, although it overlooked a dismal looking house. We did not feel it was necessary to ask for another room. Hotel serves complimentary wine and cheese from 5-7 in the...

My wife and I have stayed here probably 50 nights over the past 10-15 years. It is clear that the owners attempt to meet the needs of guests. Sometimes you need to ask. They are always willing to do what they can to assist. In this period of time, there have been several upgrades made to the facility. Parking is...

Noisy rude guests had 4 rooms and hotel couldn't control the chaos. During the day kids ran everywhere and even at the spa they weren't with adults. At night No sleep at all. Rooms had to have damage with all the noise and wall was getting beaten up so much that we could see😳 items in our room shake like...

We got our room on a Groupon, checked in and went to check it out.. Terrible!!! Back of the hotel, small dreary room.. I went to the front desk and asked for an upgrade. They gave me an upgrade for a reasonable price. Our second room was great. The wine and cheese and crackers was nice in the evening and...

After a long drive down the coast highway we were met with a very warm welcome at the Masterpiece. We received an upgraded room upstairs looking toward the ocean, which was large and comfy and quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed the happy hour wine and cheese, and the included breakfast next morning was also welcome. Plenty of carparks, and the location...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and were very pleased with the experience. Without even asking we were upgraded free of charge to the Honeymoon Suite, which was really large. It's on the second floor at the end of the hall, overlooking a side street instead of the main parking lot and street, so was very quiet....

I booked a couple nights at this hotel on 11/24/14 and 11/25/14 because I got a good deal on Living Social. Pros: Our room was spacious and clean. The hotel staff were helpful and friendly; nice large hot tub and quaint fitness center. Wine and cheese is offered in the lobby each evening, which was a nice little treat. Good...

I stayed here on July 4th, after deciding I really didn't feel like driving back home to Fresno. Every single place I tried in the Morro Bay area was booked and I was about to give up when I spotted this charming place. The person that checked me in was very kind and actually went down $10 on the price...
